Xenon

Overview

What is Xenon?

Xenon Xe 133 Gas is supplied in a mixture of xenon gas (5%) in carbon dioxide (95%). It is contained within septum sealed glass vials and is suitable for inhalation in the diagnostic evaluation of pulmonary function and imaging, as well as assessment of cerebral blood flow. Xenon Xe 133 Gas is reactor-produced as a by-product of Uranium U235 fission. Each vial contains the labeled amount of Xenon Xe 133 radioactivity at the time of calibration. The contents of the vial are in gaseous form, contain no preservatives, and are ready for use.

Xenon Xe 133 is chemically and physiologically related to elemental Xenon, a non-radioactive monoatomic gas which is physiologically inert except for anesthetic properties at high doses.

What are the available doses of Xenon?

Sorry No records found.

What should I talk to my health care provider before I take Xenon?

Sorry No records found

How should I use Xenon?

Inhalation of Xenon Xe 133 Gas has proved valuable for the evaluation of pulmonary function and for imaging the lungs. It may also be applied to assessment of cerebral flow.

Xenon Xe 133 Gas is administered by inhalation from closed respirator systems or spirometers.

The suggested activity range employed for inhalation by the average adult patient (70 kg) is:

Pulmonary function including imaging: 74-1110MBq (2-30mCi) in 3 liters of air.

Cerebral blood flow: 370-1110MBq (10-30mCi) in 3 liters of air.

The patient dose should be measured by a suitable radioactivity calibration system immediately prior to administration.

Sorry No Records found


What are the side effects of Xenon?

Adverse reactions related to the use of this agent have not been reported to date.


What should I look out for while using Xenon?

None known.

Xenon Xe 133 Gas delivery systems, i.e., respirators or spirometers, and associated tubing assemblies must be leakproof to avoid loss of radioactivity into the environs not specifically protected by exhaust systems.

Xenon Xe 133 adheres to some plastics and rubber and should not be allowed to stand in tubing or respirator containers. The unrecognized loss of radioactivity from the dose for administration may render the study non-diagnostic.

The vial stopper contains dry natural rubber latex and may cause allergic reactions in providers or patients who are sensitive to latex.


What might happen if I take too much Xenon?

Sorry No Records found

Clinical Pharmacology

Xenon Xe 133 is a readily diffusible gas which is neither utilized nor produced by the body. It passes through cell membranes and freely exchanges between blood and tissue. It tends to concentrate more in body fat than in blood, plasma, water or protein solutions. In the concentrations used for diagnostic purposes it is physiologically inactive. Inhaled Xenon Xe 133 Gas will enter the alveolar wall and enter the pulmonary venous circulation via the capillaries. Most of the Xenon Xe 133 that enters the circulation from a single breath is returned to the lungs and exhaled after a single pass through the peripheral circulation.

Non-Clinical Toxicology
